What is a musket nipple?

Table of contents


An increasing number of black powder shooters prefer the ignition performance of larger-sized musket caps in place of the No. 11 percussion caps, particularly with the use of Pyrodex pellets. To accommodate their needs and allow the use of tophat or English-style musket caps, Remington is offering a replacement conversion nipple for its Model 700 in-line muzzleloading rifles. The Musket Cap Nipple is offered separately and may be available directly from the factory.

To check availability or to place an order direct, call our Parts Department at 1-800-243-9700, Mon-Fri, 9-5 EST.
